Fire strike warning

 

Take care with the fireworks
People are being warned to take extra care this weekend as two more firefighters' strikes loom.

 

Strike action by the Fire Brigade's Union is planned for Friday between 6.30pm and 11pm and Monday between 6am and 8am.

Berkshire Fire Authority is encouraging people to take extra care when cooking, smoking or using electrical items.

The strike action will take place either side of the weekend, when many people may be enjoying Bonfire Night or Diwali celebrations. 

People are advised to only build bonfires well away from buildings, fences, trees and garden structures and to keep a bucket of water or a garden hose nearby in case of emergencies
